BLUEBERRY MADNESS SMOOTHIE

Recipe from Gourmet Nutrition: The Cookbook for the Fit Food Lover

Prep time – 5 min

1 large or 2 small servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup herbal fruit tea

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 1/2 cups ice

  • 1 cup blueberries

  • 1/4 cashews

  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat cottage cheese

  • 1 Tb flaxseed oil

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 pinch cinnamon

  • Splenda, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Steep a tea bag in 1 cup of hot water for 3 minutes. Add ice to chill the tea. Combine all ingredients in a counter top blender. Blend on high until mixture is smooth and creamy.

VARIATIONS & OPTIONS

If you are lactose intolerant or wish to avoid dairy, replace the 1 cup cottage cheese with 1 cup lactose-free yogurt or 1 cup unsweetened soy milk or 1 cup water and 1/2 scoop protein powder. Alternatively, you can substitute non-cow’s-milk (e.g. goat’s milk). For some berry variety, substitute blueberries with their antioxidant-rich cousin – the blackberry. To add some fish oil to this shake, substitute 1 teaspoon of lemon-flavored fish oil in place of flaxseed oil. Post workout option: For a creamier post workout option, replace the cottage cheese with fruit-flavored yogurt. If you’d like to avoid Splenda, you can replace with a small amount of stevia.
